I want to thank all students and staff who joined in the Opening Worship Service this past Wednesday, August 10, which included prayers of blessing for Her Majesty the Queen and honors being paid to faculty and staff who have completed 25 years of service here at Payap University. This week there are two important activities: the second annual rice planting in our “Organic Agriculture” project, August 17, 2016 beginning at 6 a.m. There will be a traditional “teacher veneration ceremony” (Wai Kru) for this academic year at 9 a.m., August 18. All students and faculty are invited to join in this annual custom. An announcement has been made that classes will be canceled for the morning.
